"while I had it out" adventures

I had out the retired Print Poetry designer series paper stack and the coordinating (because it's Stampin' Up!® and coordinating is one of the things they do best), also retired In Color inks and card stock for the kite-theme thank you notes I was making last week.  While I had it out, I saw Match the Sketch 122 and thought I'd try this:
stamp sets - Petite Petals, Flower Shop, Tagtastic (hostess, retired); ink - Summer Starfruit (retired), Primrose Petals (retired), Raspberry Ripple (retired): card stock - Very Vanilla, Summer Starfruit (retired, not visible in photo); designer series paper - Print Poetry (retired); punches - Petite Petals, Pansy, Extra-Wide Oval (retired)

I also made my friend-whose-favorite-color-is-green a birthday card, which I think I'll link up at Seize the Birthday and Addicted to Stamps and More! where anything goes:
stamp set - Four You; ink - Gumball Green (retired): card stock - Very Vanilla, Gumball Green (retired): designer series paper - Print Poetry (retired); Big Shot with Ovals Collection framelits 

After that, I put the retired papers away.  But I still had the washi tape on my desk for Jingle Belles, who've been a-washi-ing in a washi wonderland (hehehe):
card stock - Old Olive; sequins - Metallics Assortment; washi tape - various retired Stampin' Up! sets, other than the darkest, Mossy Meadow, available while supplies last, 2014-2016 In Colors

It's been done before, but not by me, so while I had it out, I had to try it.  I seem to have been in a very green sort of mood today!
